Gf 5900 temps and powermizer :S
I´ve just noticed that I have got such tab in my drivers´ control panel... Wasn´t it a feature of mobile cards?? I also have noticed that my card´s temperature growns up if I move the slider to "balanced" or to "performance" from default ( powersavings )
Might be possible even further overclock with this supposed gain in voltages??
By the way, I´m currently using 71.89s dhzeropoint set of drivers

Thanks ^^

I wrote the book on mobile GPUs
All GeForce AGP 3.0 GPUs (NV18/28, and NV3x) have a thermal diode, including the GeForceGo (NV18M/28M/31M/34M/36M) mobile GPU series for laptops. I cannot speak to NV41M/43M, but one can safely assume a thermal diode is still included.

However, you won't see the temperature tab on a GeForceGo laptop drivers The laptop OEMs customize the NVIDIA drivers A LOT, because laptop power-saving technology tends to be proprietary (varies from vendor to vendor). Since an OEM manufacturer can save +/- 5 cents per laptop by eliminating such a circuit, many leave it out (however unwisely). Some OEMs hide the thermal sensor reading to prevent the customer from seeing how hot the laptop really runs. YMMV.

Finally I have decided to clean old drivers and to install the 77.13s ^^ so no more powermizer :^P
